Culpepper to make his case

The grievance hearing between the Miami Dolphins, quarterback Daunte Culpepper and the NFL Players Association was delayed until Tuesday when arbitrator John Feerick missed his flight to South Florida.

Culpepper filed a grievance against the Dolphins after the team did not allow him to participate in the team portion of a three-day minicamp earlier this month.

Culpepper, who is being represented by NFLPA lead attorney Richard Berthelsen, was expected to testify on his own behalf.

The Dolphins were expected to have several people testify, including coach Cam Cameron and members of the team’s medical and training staff.

Feerick is a law professor at Fordham University. He is the same person who ruled last year in favor of quarterback Steve McNair in a grievance against Tennessee over a somewhat similar circumstance.

The ruling hastened McNair being traded to Baltimore.

Culpepper is hoping to win his own freedom in his hearing.
